#Future of Talks: The Future of Capitalism

Friday, 04 October 2019 14:26

If you look at measures like GDP growth and lifespan, life is better for more people around the world than ever before. Yet inequality is rising, natural resources are running low, and many people are questioning the capitalist systems that led us here.What’s at stake if we continue with the status quo? Should we be seeking to make small adjustments or is a total system overhaul the way forward? What is the future role of businesses in a system that needs to be about more than maximising financial profits?

Join us October 29 to hear from business leaders, policy experts, and researchers. The full guest speaker line-up will be announced soon.
